Craftwork Cards DT day

Hi all my lovely crafters.

It is my turn to post to Craftwork cards blog today and I have created a card and box using flowers hand cut and rolled just to show it is possible without a Die cutting machine ( I definitely would not be without mine but it is possible if you are on a budget).

I have used Craftwork Cards Bohemian Collection still available to Purchase or you can now download and print until your hearts content too. How modern haha.
 I would like to be great at photography so I can really show case the sparkle in the paper and how pretty it all is but I am afraid my late hubby was the man for that job. I just Create Art .
 This is a Anna Griffin butterfly already layered all I did was to glitter and bling him up. Pimped up my butterfly should I say  haha (probably not but I did ).
 The bow is from the new paper die-cut bow pads that are doing amazingly well, I added lots of rows of Chantilly Olive candi to the top.

Of course the inside needs to match as its important for a stunning card to have a fabby inside too.

I also made a box so here it is.

 Hand cut flowers some from unglittered paper some with glitter. I chose a vintage style lace for the bow and pearl rows for around the edge of the box instead of ribbon.
 Crushed up turned Candi with small bling stones inside add a little interest around the flowers.
 You can see that gorgeous glittered paper here.
And all the strung pearls too.

So I hope you are enjoying the blog today. I will be posting more frequently from now on so My day for Heartfelt Creations to coinside with their blog is Wednesday. For Craftwork Cards It is today and the 26th August and for my new team Visible Image I will be posting for them every Sunday. I also will be adding more projects to go forward to Making cards magazine so come on back and look around and be sure to leave me a comment as I always answer and is always exciting to see what other crafter's think too.
Lastly I want to say a huge welcome to my new folks joining the blog and to remind everyone that when I hit my first 100 followers I will do a little competition so I look forward to getting there.

Have a great Monday
